ACCREDITED mitigation PREVENTION occupational

WHO we are

"prevention is better than cure"

Inception in 2013, followed from a marriage of the field of  Environmental Health and Occupational Hygiene culminating in certification with the SA Institute of Occupational Hygiene (SAIOH).

Acu-Chron attained SANAS Accreditation as ISO 17020 Inspection Body, in addition is registered with the Department of Employment & Labour as an Approved Inspection Authority.

Fields of SANAS accredited inspection include occupational exposure to airborne Asbestos dust, Lead, and Hazardous Chemicals, and Occupational Noise.

The effectiveness of Ventilation as Control Measures is also inspected (measured).

“Self-Regulation, and “Reasonable and Practicable” are recurring themes in the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act 85 of 1993 (OHS Act). This bestows a legal obligation on the Employer.

*Airborne pollutants that might cause occupational disease or health injury, like chemicals, asbestos dust, lead and exposure to noise are just some of the occupational hygiene stressors that might cause a relatively quick (acute) damaging effect on exposed person’s health. Some can accumulate over several years (chronic) to cause damage to health over time. Others may cause effects that aggravate other less toxic pollutants to in combination have a worse health effect on the person, or can even cause the effect in combination, to have a far worse outcome on the exposed person’s health.
